    We accumulate "reject" boxes - sell a lot down in the southeast.

    What constitutes a reject? Why are they even allowed off the property? Why wouldn't they just be sold "as is" or "purchase at your own risk"? If they are good enuf to hold frames.

    I hope the money you "save" is worth it in the long run. Silk purse anyone?

    I checked into budget and reject boxes last year also and determined the same thing. Shiiping price to FL really killed it.

    I ship a fair amount of reject and budget boxes into Jerry (Dadants) at High Springs - he might be able to do better for you since shipments to him are full semi-loads, thus reducing overall shipping costs. Rick
